Question mark block still full of coins
Though Nintendo's seeing its first profit decline in six years as we previously reported, their fiscal report isn't all bad news. Their home console hit a worldwide total of 70.93 million sales in its lifetime. Compare this to the 21.72 million units of GameCubes that sold before its time passed and just how big of a feat this is comes into focus.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, Nintendo admitted that its profit loss was due partially to their failure to release enough big titles in the first half of the year. Hopefully they'll learn from their lesson, and E3 is just around the corner. What suspense! How many more units can they sell?
